About this title
This three-volume set of original readings is designed to reveal how and why children and young people have been repeatedly the subject of adult concern, censure, and intervention. It conceptualizes notions of ′childhood′, ′youth′, and ′adolescence′ while also tracing the complex history of adult intervention and juvenile justice. In the 21st century discourses of protection, restoration, punishment, responsibility, rehabilitation, welfare, retribution, diversion, human rights, and so on exist alongside each other in a perpetually uneasy and contradictory manner. Youth Crime and Juvenile Justice provides a lens through which to navigate this complex field.About the Author:
